Clean Reset

On Windows Mobile 2003 SE products, a hard (full) reset clears all user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM (Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have loaded are stored. A full reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system lockup or failure. A full reset returns the unit to the factory defaults. Remove AC power before performing a full reset.

NOTE: Data in the iPAQ File Store is maintained following a full reset. For all other data, users must restore data from an expansion storage card or PC Active Sync backup after performing a full reset.

On Windows Mobile 5.0 products, a hard (full) reset stops all running programs, but does not clear user data or applications because they are stored in ROM (Persistent Store feature). A hard reset also resets all hardware registers. Users can perform a Clean Reset, in which the product is cleared to its factory defaults. A clean reset returns the device to the default Windows Mobile 5.0 settings with no user data or applications.

To perform a clean reset please follow these steps:

  • Press and hold the Calendar button, the Power button, and the Messaging button.
  • While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the device.
